  • GSX Table safety hook

    I've worked with GSX pinsetters for almost a year now, and have witnessed a table falling onto the pin deck twice now. For my safety and the safety of other mechanics here, I am trying to find a quick setup tool that can be used when we need to hop into the lane to clear out J1s and such. Something that can easily be put in place and removed without taking too much of the customers time, however still keep us safe if a table clevise ever went while we are under there.

    I've heard rumour of some sort of "table hook". What is this and how is it setup? Or, is there anything else that would do the job? I'm good with fabrication, and could make something if there's nothing on the market, anyone have any tips?

    Thanks in advance!

    They made us install a "safety rod" for the table before the bowlmor buyout it's pretty much drill a hole on the table tube above the white tube guide and insert rod attached to a wore screwed to the frame. I know it's a kit from Brunswick but not sure on part #
    Keep an eye on it see if it does it again

      You could use something as simple as a piece of 1/4" chain with open hooks on each end. (My mind just went to a vision of guys running across the back with a chain draped around their neck going to a call )
      Or something like A-ron mentions could be made to hang on the sweep wagon drive shaft and hook under front swing shaft.
      Either one, you'd have to either have several placed across the back, or grab it when you leave for the call.

        You could also fashion a clamp that you could quickly attach to the post at the stroke limiter to hold the post position onto the stroke limiter in cast the 'T' threads failed.
        If it wasn't for the guards, it would be easy to block the teeth on a post at the rollers.

            47-860011-000 is the part # for the GSX Table Safety Support A-Ron mentioned. It only works in the home position, so it won't help with a lot of calls, but works well when working under the table.

              I would stilll use a jack under the table, yes it gets in the way but ts safe!, if you have the table hook then what would happen if the studs broke?
